Danne Semeraro of Sempli


Sempli Monti Beer Set
Danne Semeraro of Sempli, born and raised Sweden, studied Interior and Industrial Design in Italy. While living in Florence, Semearro conceived of the ingenious, playful Cupa design.

As the creator of Sempli, he fuses the spirit of both Sweden and Italy: modern functionality and classical elegance. While experiencing wine, oxygenation via the glass makes a positive impact on flavor. Functionality informs the natural motion apparent in the Cupa and Vaso designs.

A sense of fluidity imbues Sempli glassware, as expert glass blowers craft each item. All are made using the highest quality lead-free crystal.
